Mobile version considerations¶
I don't have any Android device to test on, although it might be possible to use some emulator instead.
It'd still be great if someone else showed up who could do porting&testing on mobile.
Despite the fact we're willing to accept porting contributions even to browsers that are not 100% free, we're still interesting in finding out about the free ones. Does anybody know of any 100% libre FF- or Chromium-derived mobile browsers that can be built under an FSDG-compliant distro?
I suspect IceCat can be built on FSDG-compliant distros. Ungoogled Chromium might have that option, yet it's pointless seeing as support for extensions has been deprecated in the mobile version. I'm not sure about anything else, albeit with an inclination to believe something Chromium-based might be accessible through Replicant (c.f. Android WebView).
In any case, this will be much easier if we can find somebody with a mobile device!

I am not so sure. Official mobile releases stopped at 38.6.0. I know discontinuation of the Losedowns version was due to its build process relying on some nonfree M$ stuff. With Android version I'd expect similar problems, except It'd not be nonfree deps but rather deps that haven't been patched and packaged for FSDG...

Bad news, although good to know
